Our street

For Shelly- what a pedestrian street (midrachov) looks like.

In theory a car can sort of get in for renovations and what not from the other end, but it is not really designed for cars. This is the view from the top of the street. Behind me is a busy street that. On the right is the makolet (grocery store).

small ghetto park thing at the top of the street in front of the makolet.

view from in front of our building looking up the street towards the makolet.

park around the corner just so you can see not all our parks are from 1948.

but it is still a touch creepy in it's own way.

That is so Israel to have sand at the park! I would hate that. It would get in my underwear if I was a kid!

Now that I've seen it, I still can't imagine a street that cars dont drive on. Ya know? Especially in Israel where there ARE no traffic laws ;)

Oh yuck! That's terrible! That would never fly here because it's "not safe"

They've got mulch here and some places have that rubber stuff.
